this comes after susan rice's nomination was arguably pulled. people believe that the president wanted susan rice to be secretary of state, and she was making a very public effort to court senators up on capitol hill for that nomination. she withdrew her name herself, but it was believed that the president wanted her to be that nominee, at first. she wasn't. and this nominee, chuc chuck hailing was under fire from the start. it doesn't seem that the president wanted to pull this potential nomination and is ready for this fight. he will likely have the votes, jon. and it may be a bumpy ride to get there, but he'll likely get there. and how much political capitol it takes to get there is really the question on both of these nominations. at the end of the day, the presidents usually get who they want to have in their cab tphefplt it's cabinet. it's a rare event when they don't. it does happen up here in washington but for the most part they can usually get the votes. jon: even more rare when a nominee is a former senator. how about john bren an also withdrew his name from consideration to be ci

and susan rice opted not to pursue her candidacy for secretary of state in the face of opposition i think the president will not back down on this one and you can expect him to press very hard and ultimately i think success in the senate on confirmation. >> let me turn your attention to the debt ceiling debate which will ramp up in earnest to the extent it didn't already on sunday morning talk shows. you were made aware of analysis that indicates we will hit that debt ceiling maybe even sooner or than the treasury will have to start taking its ex record to marry steps even sooner than we thought. so what happens if we really get to the point where we go over, and what the next steps? what does the treasury do? >> very difficult choices. the treasury would have to prioritize bill paying. they could do it by the day. do it by the type of expense they are going to repay. presumably sovereign debt would be repaid first. but given the fact this is unprecedented, never happened before, you could have the president reconsidering his assertion that he could not use executive authority. the presid
